Hike across the flower-covered streambed of Indian Creek, then climb to the top of Sand Ridge. Where it can get enough direct sunlight, Rocky Mountain maple forms the forest understory. In 150 yards the route enters the rocky streambed of Indian Creek, where it becomes vague. Lupine, penstemon, and skyrockets grow between the rocks beside the route as you cross the 30 yards of streambed to Indian Creek. There is no bridge here so the creek must be forded. By midsummer this ford is usually easy, but earlier in the season it can be difficult.
